Jade Software has today announced the establishment of new offices in the Holland (Rotterdam) and Indonesia (Jakarta) to support the continued growth of their flagship terminal operating system, Jade Master Terminal.
Master Terminal is a terminal operating system designed to manage a variety of cargo types, streamline operations, and improve efficiency and productivity at ports around the world.
Having experienced record sales in 2014, Jade is now building local capability to support its expanding network and help drive increased growth in these strategic markets.
“We place a high value on having a local presence in all of our key markets," says David Lindsay, Managing Director, Jade Software.
"It is instrumental to providing excellent support services and building long term customer relationships and accelerating further growth."
Lindsay adds that Rotterdam is home to one of the largest concentrations of marine terminals in the world, making it a significant growth area for Jade’s mixed cargo terminal operating system.
Indonesia is a new market for Jade, and a local presence will provide an opportunity to take advantage of the region’s enormous development potential.
“Indonesia presents exciting future prospects for Master Terminal," Lindsay adds.
"The Indonesian Government is investing heavily in infrastructure and port development in line with its Master Plan for Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia’s Economic Development and is committed to expanding sea port capacity across the region.
"Jade’s software is perfectly aligned to what the Indonesian Government and the port sector are trying to achieve in this market."
Lindsay says both offices will be staffed by a combination of local technical and business management experts and expat staff, and backed by the team from Jade’s Logistics Development Centre in New Zealand.
The expansion of offices, infrastructure and capability bring the number of countries in which Jade operates to seven and supports Jade’s aspiration to be the number one supplier of terminal operating systems to the world’s mixed cargo ports.
These latest developments build on the announcement in February of Jade’s seven terminal sale to Abu Dhabi Ports Company, combined with substantial multi-terminal deals in 2014 across the Americas, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Master Terminal has now been licensed to more than 70 ports worldwide.
